Johnny Depp Stars In Dior's Sauvage Perfume Launch Film

A short film 'Legend of the Magic Hour', starring Johnny Depp, marks the launch of the new Dior Sauvage perfume.

Set in the Californian desert, the film reworks the Navajo legend of the coyote, the trickster founder of the Milky Way, who messes with galaxies and mere mortals. According to ancient legends, when the sky was tinged blue by the setting sun, the coyote spirit returned to Earth to toy with mankind. Legend of the Magic Hour, with Depp's voice as narrator, interprets this concept with its mystical, entrancing journey.

Dior Sauvage is one of the most popular men's fragrances on the market.

“The magic hour which inspired me in creating this perfume is a very special moment, suspended between day and night, when the sky turns shades of blue, and the horizon is colored with a hazy ripple of yellow and pink, named the Belt of Venus. The desert air exhales a multitude of powerful smells; it’s the moment when the animals come out, as the daylight slips away." François Demachy, Dior’s exclusive Perfumer-Creator.
